After trading down to the No. 14 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers took Javon Kinlaw, filling one of their biggest holes. The Niners needed to patch up the interior defensive line after trading DeForest Buckner to the Colts, and Kinlaw’s length make him a successful pocket-collapsing pass rusher.
With their other first-round pick and their last pick in the draft, the 49ers added two more wide receivers with Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk and Tennessee’s Jauan Jennings. Georgia tight end Charlie Woerner rounded out the 49ers’ attempt to use the draft to add more weapons to Jimmy Garoppolo’s arsenal.
Many of San Francisco’s big moves on the day came outside of their draft acquisitions, as they traded Matt Breida to the Dolphins for the No. 153 pick, in which they grabbed Colton McKivitiz to pad the offensive line. They also acquired star left tackle Trent Williams from the Redskins in exchange for a fifth-round pick and a 2021 third-round pick.
